Fuse blowing problem

I have 99 F-350. The problem is the injection control module fuse keeps blowing thus killing the motor.After checking all over, I found the wires somewhat melted near a plug on the back of throttle housing. I put new plug end on and restarted. It ran fine for about an hour. Tried to go down road, 2 miles later same fuse, poof!!! I put jumper wire in to get back to house without a meltdown. Checked the same wire but its OK. Any suggestions or ideas would be great.

Yes, its behind the filter housing. Could that be shorting out inside causing it to blow the fuse?

yes...your fuel heater is shorted....disconnect it for now and it should start (with a good fuse) and then replace the fuel heater when you get a chance...

At least someone can point me in some direction, instead of the old "just bring it in and we'll find the problem".$$$$$$$ I don't have to spend for someone else to look, I have eyes myself.
